Client feedback


Ever increasing regulation has placed a heavy burden on trustees both in terms of time and the risk of non-compliance. PSGS has the experience and the resources to help trustees manage these burdens.
Mark Atkinson,
Partner at CMS Cameron McKenna
PSGS offered the right support at very short notice, at reasonable cost, when we really needed it
Ian Edwards,
Chair of Trustee, Comet Pension Scheme
Where PSGS are appointed to act in conjunction with an existing body of trustees, we have found that they are quickly able to fit in well and gain the trust and respect of their co-trustees.
Duncan Buchanan,
Partner at Hogan Lovells
It’s a pleasure working with key members of the PSGS team: their experience and leadership means that they know how to get the job done, working in partnership with fellow trustees, employers and advisers to achieve the best result for members.

Wish I'd had the opportunity to do the Trustee training course sooner!

Excellent service - as expected and why PSGS was chosen.

It is true that producing paper packs is the ‘short straw’ job for members of our specialist scheme secretary team - and they are a risk to family pets as they drop through the letterbox! However, for some pension trustees, the thought of having to go digital and losing the ream of paper to work through can be daunting.

Whilst the trend is definitely towards paperless meetings, what are the pros and cons of the various options available?

There’s a lot of noise just now about data minimisation and many question whether you should really send scheme information to personal email addresses, even if they are password protected. Pension trustees also need to consider how far they need to worry about possible data issues by other data controller. This might make it a sensible time to take a look at how trustee meeting packs and papers are produced for your pension scheme.
